    Pros

    Unique company with a rarely seen business model. It is a global company that has found great strength outside the USA and is bringing that into the domestic market. Agricultural challenges abound in the USA and it is a moving target, so the company is evolving its product line to adapt to droughts and low commodity prices and pressures from competition. It takes a while to stabilize and adapt to change caused by a zig-zag and consolidating customer base. The company is unafraid to take steps to improve.

    Cons

    The business model may confuse some who have not worked in a technical agricultural role before. The company is breaking free from old practices and that created a roller coaster effect. Many do not like it. There are changes at the top, and all change is stressful, especially if you are directly affected.

    Advice to Management

    Make longer term plans and stick to them.

    I worked at Stoller full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is tremendous potential for this company. Products are unique and perform very well and consistently. There are 14 subsidiaries that perform well as they are left alone for the most part to do what needs to be done. The US operation in Houston however is under the control of the president of the company and his "yes men".

    Cons

    Stoller continues to anger the market by constantly changing their business plan, frustrating customers and retailers. Stoller exhibits the worst personnel management I've ever experienced. It's a miserable environment and there are no options for employees to improve any situation and no senior manager seems to care. The company supports a non-profit operation that continues to grow and siphon profits. This group has become far too influential in the day-to-day operations of the company. in 2016 numerous valuable employees have been let go....long-time employees with critical knowledge and experience. Some great people remain but too many are young, inexperienced and willing to do whatever they are told to do regardless of the impact on the market. Rumors: There are many there now who believe that the US operation will be shut down and sold-off. The president is in failing health and still maintains a grip on the operation. Decision making is at best: questionable.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a national sales manager and sales reps and get out of their way. Hire some marketing communications pros and let them do their thing. Provide aggressive funding. Stop micromanaging - you don't know what you're doing. Take care of your people; pay them well. Get your regulatory issues in order. The president of the company needs to step aside and current managers have demonstrated poor ability to grow the US operation so you need to hire that guy too. Maybe you can turn the US operation around but much damage has been done so earning the business all over again will take some time.
